With the health reform bill finally enacted, stakeholders on all sides of
the health care industry are turning their attention to how the law will
actually be implemented ó and what impact the changes will have on them.

In Health Reformís Impact on Commercial and Medicare Health
Plans
, insiders close to HHS and in leadership positions at health
plans, provider organizations and PBMs spell out what form the rules might
take ó and who will be the winners and losers.

This report highlights administrative chal≠lenges posed by the reform law,
and delves into the likely impact of the act on coverage, benefit designs,
medical costs and pharmacy benefits. It also outlines how successful

little concrete detail on how provisions such as medical loss ratio
requirements, the essential ben≠efits package or the exchange will work
in practice.
